Photography and Community A lasting legacy for Paul Pivert

For many people native to Grande Prairie, Paul Pivert is a familiar and beloved name.

Paul had a passion for both photography and community. For years, his vibrant smile and collection of cameras was seen at every major event in the area.

Paul was happiest behind a camera, capturing moments in people’s lives and our community brought him true joy.

For many years, almost immediately after attending a community event his photos would appear in the window of Panda’s Cameras. Anyone strolling by was more than welcome to come in and talk about the event, or photography in general.

Paul was a truly beloved member of our community. From participating in the Grande Prairie Photography Club, to volunteering his time, his presence was felt around our area, touching many lives through his art.

When Paul passed away suddenly in February 2014 at the age of 70 , as a token of respect and affection, The Grande Prairie Photography Club, and Paul’s Family and Friends established a student award fund in his name; providing funding to visual arts students who share Paul’s passion for both art and community.
